Should be mainly dry, there

Should be mainly dry, there is the slight risk of a shower or two about perhaps in the morning but otherwise it's looking mainly dry with a mix of sun and cloud.

Paihia Thurs - Sat, this week

Hey Team, Love you work! We're heading upto Paihia this Thurs. Im reading reports there is rain forecasted for most of the country. We want to do a Dolphin Cruise and were wondering out of Fri or Sat which day would be best? Maybe even Thurs if they are both rubbish. Thanks in advance. AJ

Saturday looks to be the

Saturday looks to be the better day at this stage, still the risk of a shower about but it should be mainly dry overall.

Have a good one! :)

weather

I go onto this weather forecast site to find out what my local weather is doing why is nz's weather not the main focus. It bloody well should be. Boyd Tisdall

Hi Boyd, we have over 2000

Hi Boyd, we have over 2000 detailed forecast locations for all of NZ, compared to around 100 which you help tax fund at MetServiec and NIWA. We have vidoes about NZ, mutiple daily news stories about NZ and specially made infographics - and this weekend we have a couple of big cyclones hitting Australia which we are covering as they are in our area (While NZ's weather is very quiet).

We're an entirely free service and for over 10 years we have covered storms around the Pacific Rim. Kind regards and thanks for choosing to use our free service over the ones you pay for in your taxes.

Philip Duncan.

Kerikeri

So, beach this morning or beach this arvo?? Have to work around kids' nap time! Will predicted showers be earlier or later arvo? Ta

Hi there, looks dry this

Hi there, looks dry this morning but may be an isolated inland shower this afternoon. Keep an eye on the sky as you'll probably be able to quite clearly see if it's going to be dry and where the big cloud build ups may be. For now all the showers are offshore and moving away from you but the afternoon shower may be a new one that forms inland.

Hope that helps - have a great day :)

fog

its foggy in auckland today. it was not forecast

Fog is simply cloud at ground

Fog is simply cloud at ground level and sometimes it can surprise us - we can't forecast every cloud above us so sometimes fog can be the same when it quickly forms. You'll be pleased to know we are working on a new fog forecast product which we may release as an entirely free service for all NZers in the near future (ie, later this year).  A work in progress seeing as neither MetService nor NIWA share any realtime open data (and NZers are made to fund them both, not fund WeatherWatch).

Videos

Weather watch would be way better if you could deliver videos everyday.

funnel clouds

just saw a few funnel clouds. whats causing these?

Hi there, thanks for the

Hi there, thanks for the update - whereabouts did you see them? The weather we have in some parts of NZ is favourable for small funnel clouds due to warm weather, calm conditions and a fair bit of moisture/humidity in the air. In the afternoons/early evenings the warmth rises and in the calmness it can start to spin some of the lower clouds. In the right conditions when we have a lot more energy this weather can lead to severe thunderstorms and even tornados. We don't expect any tornadoes but if there is a severe thunderstorm warning in your area in the days ahead then harmless funnel clouds can become more concerning. 

Cheers 
WW

Hobsonville

Seen two in Hobsonville Point, Auckland over the last 2 weeks. It's probably the forth funnel cloud I've seen in the area.

wow

lucky they dont touch down cause hobsonville did have a tornado in 2012. new houses had replaced the destroyed houses

east auckland

pakuranga east auckland. its bren cloudy today and i saw 3 funnel clouds looked like cones

Cyclone Names

Hi there, where do they get the names for the Cyclones from please? cheers JS

Hey there JS, Storms named

Hey there JS,

Storms named around Australia are named by the Australian forecasters at the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). Storms north of NZ in the Fiji/Vanuatu/Tonga area are named by Fiji forecasters at the Fiji MetService. It would be great if NZ's MetService could maybe get a few Kiwi names in there some time as they work officially alongside Fiji.

Kind regards
Phil D

Storms names

Hi Phil, thanks for the info. I totally agree with you, it wud b great if Metservice could get some Kiwi names in there re storms/cyclones. Surely it wouldn’t take much to drum up a bit of comms work between them and our Island friends. That’s what I like about you guys at WeatherWatch, you are always on the ball, excellent communicators and get it right. Keep up the great work

Wedding

Will the weather be ok on 30th March for my wedding in Auckland. You said rain at the very end of March is that March 31st? Ek!

Hey there, it's too far out

Hey there, it's too far out to lock in sorry - especially due to the fact these western rain bands may be coming in around then and it's quite a complicated set up in northern NZ (in other words a lot of moving parts that can affect the outcome). The good news (maybe!) for you is that high pressure is still dominating the Auckland area so don't worry too much just yet. We'll probably have a fair idea by this Friday and the Weekend how the 31st is shaping up. 
Cheers

East cape

Looking at scenic helicopter flights around east cape on Friday 29th at lunchtime. Can you tell me what the wind conditions will be like?

Hi there, most of the country

Hi there, most of the country is under high pressure but the very tip of East Cape is in the outer edges of wind circling the high. Generally not too windy, perhaps up around 25 or 30km/h.

Cheers and all the best!

Waiheke island Fri and Sat

Hi WW, what's the chance of these predicted downpours/showers affecting Waiheke island on Friday and Saturday? Will there be some sunshine too? Cheers

Hi there Friday and Saturday

Hi there

Friday and Saturday looks likely to have a mix of sun and cloud, Friday carries the risk of a shower or two otherwise it's looking mainly dry, downpours don't look that likely but perhaps an outside chance.

Saturday looks to be a dry day.

Cheers
Aaron

Weather very Hazey i Auckland today

Was it due to just a lack of wind?

Lack of wind, high humidity /

Lack of wind, high humidity / dewpoints etc are likely causes.

Auckland weather

How is the weather looking for end of March over the weekend? thank you :)

Hi thereThat's basically two

Hi there

That's basically two weeks away so anything I say now may not come to fruition.

At this stage it looks like a SE airflow so perhaps it may be mainly settled in Auckland then. Check these maps out:

They go out to the end of March so you can keep an eye on what's happening.

Wow...your site has gone wonky

Hi WW guys. I logged in for a look and what used to be blue is now black and half the weather info is blocked out by a HUGE dark gray strip down the entire right side. I hope this isn't permanent as it makes seeing the forecasted reports hard. Thank you, Phil, Aaron & team, for reading this and keep up the great work you do.

Thank you for your

Thank you

As soon as I saw black I knew you had done that in support of Chch and to acknowledge the appalling loss of life. Thank you. The tears of the kiwi and the link a great part of your gesture. The money keeps going up and up but the number of people donating is only a tiny % of our population, I hope all those who can afford to, donate something, partly for the money, but mostly for the support.

Thanks for that. Hoping you

Thanks for that. Hoping you return to the Light soon. In truth, no money from me. I can barely put food on the table and this phone is in question. Soon no more Top Ups, just kept for 111 issues. Cheers.

Looks quite good this Sunday morning, mostly sunny weather with light winds in the morning tending easterly in the afternoon. Highs in the mid twenties, should be a good one!

Whangarei Temperature Yesterday/Cloud with straight lines

Hi there, What was the high temperature in Whangarei yesterday please? Do you have any ideas what form of energy caused the straight lines in parallel in this cloud of the 10th of March? https://chemtrailsnorthnz.files.wordpress.com/2019/03/imag1239a.jpg?w=640 Thank-you. Clare

Hi Clare, these aren't chem

Hi Clare, these aren't chem trails. Chem trails do not exist in NZ and no one has ever provided NZ evidence of it other than photos of clouds or normal vapour trails. While those clouds were unusual they are not associated with chem trails actually observed overseas where it has occured.  Highs yesterday were in the mid 20s for the most part.

Nelson Sat 16th - Harvest

Hi, Your forecast is showing rain in Nelson on Saturday, but the rain radar map isn't showing any rain at all. Is one not updated? Cheers, David

Hi David, looks to me like

Hi David, looks to me like the forecast is showing drizzly showery stuff in the Nelson region. If you look at the HOURLY forecast for Nelson on Saturday it is much drier, suggesting just a 20 to 25% chance during the day but highest risk of some light wet weather around dawn. Both are updated but the Nelson forecast has probably thrown you by looking so wet - we're actually working on better displaying rain (better icons that show heavy rain or drizzle at a glance, plus rainfall totals each hour and day - to really help you plan your day). We're also going to query with IBM why they have a 70% risk for Saturday when their hourly data isn't so high. Hope that helps! All the best for harvest!

Cheers

Chch temp

Hi again..think your new weather station for the now temp is a bit whacky like the last one..showing 36° at the mo..it's warm but it isn't 36... cheers

Hey there, do you have a

Hey there, do you have a Station ID for this weather station please (should show you in the Now/Current section). Give us that ID, we'll take a look and if we think it's sitting in someone's sunny hot deck we will simply block it! We've removed most false readings but a handful around NZ are still showing. While frustrating I know, it is cool that WeatherWatch has hundreds and hundreds of weather stations, rather than just a select few dozen like the Government forecasters. We're working to lift the accuracy of these stations right now so thanks heaps for letting us know --- and if anyone else is reading this and has a similar incorrect local weather reading please send us the Station ID and we'll quickly look in to it. Accuracy matters!

Cheers

High pressure

Hi there, Is there more high pressure coming for auckland towards the end of the month? I have my wedding and hoping for fine weather :) Thanks

Hi thereCould be perhaps,

Hi there

Could be perhaps, the best thing is to use this site here:

http://www.weathermap.co.nz/forecast-maps     then click on "Rain"

Those maps go out a bit further then ours and will let you see into the future most, but bear in mind the further you go out generally speaking the less accurate models become.

Hope that helps! :)

Sunny and dry Saturday for Auckland?

Hi Guys, Most of the forecast like here at WW forecasted sunny and dry Saturday for Auckland but it looks like everyone got it wrong, its been raining since 7:00am. How did it change so drastically?

Good morning - and good

Good morning - and good question to ask. We had a 25% risk of showers which which lifted at 2am to 70%. The reason why it's wetter is due to the centre of a small area of low pressure crossing Auckland right now - and as it does so it flicks up a small area of showers behind it and triggers brand new downpours. It can be one of the most unpredictable parts of weather - forecasting what is happening precisely in/around the centre of a weak spinning low. The reason why weren't bigger with the risk yesterday (for today) was due to thinking this small cluster of showers would be nudged a little further north of the city, as is often the case...but clearly it didn't pan out that way. It's a fairly small area of wet weather but it's perfectly lined up with the city. It's disappointing when we don't perfectly nail a forecast but we do have a unique policy of admitting when we're wrong and why we were wrong as a sign we are always trying to do better. 

Kind regards

WW
